About the Book
UX (user experience) writing has seen steady growth in the last decade. More jobs with UX writer titles are opening up in small and big tech companies. However, because the profession is still fairly new and UX writers often come from a design or a copywriting background, there are very few books and courses that help people bridge the gap between the two disciplines. This guide's aim is to help designers and copywriters learn from each of these disciplines to confidently call themselves UX writers.
The UX Writing for Beginner’s Guide is a work in progress. A new chapter is released every couple of weeks. When it will be complete, it will cover the following topics:
- A short history of UX
- The role of a UX writer
- Basic laws of design for better writing
- UX-focused content strategy
- All about microcopy
- The art of information architecture
- Storymapping, user journeys and personas
- The future of UX writing
About the Author
I’m Marie-Pier Rochon and I’m a UX writer.
I help start-ups, SaaS and tech-based companies use simple, clear and useful words to make and sell their products.
I don’t stop at “What do you need me to write?” I go beyond and ask “Why? How will it work? Who is this for? and What kind of experience do you want your customers to have?”
I believe in putting people first and creating outstanding digital experiences. I think tech-based tools and services can do a lot of good if we build them right. Finding the right words can do just that.
